Notes

5 Gallons of Cider.

Dissolved the sugar in half a gallon of cider at 180deg. Added the spices and orange at this time.

Used Lavilin 71B - 1122 white wine yeast.

Added one cranberry juice concentrate at kegging (after stabilization).

FG was actually .995

This is pretty dry. If you want it sweeter, add more cranberry concentrate or add some apple juice concentrate.
